HR360 Releases 2012 Employee Benefit Plan Compliance Calendar

STAMFORD, Conn., May 10, 2012–HR 360, Inc. (, publisher of the award-winning online HR Library, has released the new 2012 edition of its Employee Benefit Plan Compliance Calendar, an all-in-one calendar featuring major federal notice requirements as well as downloadable model notices and forms.

The 2012 edition includes a number of important updates as a result of new requirements under Health Care Reform, such as the new summary of benefits and coverage (SBC).

The attorney-developed calendar provides bottom line information on required notices, disclosures and filings–including who must provide them, who must receive them and when notices are due.

The 2012 Employee Benefit Plan Compliance Calendar includes:

• Health Care Reform Notices
• COBRA Notices
• HIPAA Notices
• Special Health Care Notices (Women’s Health and Cancer Rights Act, Mental Health Parity and Addiction Act and CHIP)
• Form 5500 Reporting Requirements

Also included in the compliance calendar is an interactive Benefits Notices Checklist, which summarizes key notice and reporting requirements to allow users a quick, efficient way to stay in compliance.

“We developed the Benefits Compliance Calendar to help companies keep track of all the required benefit plan notices and disclosures as well as download model notices and forms right from the calendar,” said Lillian Shapiro, President of HR 360, Inc. “It can be particularly hard for smaller companies to stay on top of all the requirements, especially if they don’t have a full time HR person on staff. We hope businesses will take advantage of this convenient tool to help them stay compliant.”
